Reason 3.0: Electronic Music Video Tut

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

It’s the first chapter of Overtone’s video tutorial series! This session, we’re sequencing electronic music in Reason 3.0. Includes links to further help online and info on SA electronic music artists.

Reason 3.0 on Overtone

Reason 3.0 is a powerful music-making device by Propellerheads, Sweden. The first version of the program was considered the sequel to existing programs such as Fruity Loops and Acid Pro.

Three things set this program (and its recent sequel, Reason 4) apart from other programs:

a flip-over view, which allows you to route the devices in a practically infinite number of ways

the inclusion of a massive library of real audio samples (*.wav and *.aiff files), rather than synthesized audio

the Rewire function, which allows the program to be plugged into other compatible programs, such as Cubase, effectively doubling its functionality

Take a look at the latest addition to the rapidly growing Overtone world, with the first of our video tutorials.
